For the record I welcomed 2013 in a proper dress but I did want to address my new fascination with nudity. For years I have been doing shots that have craftily avoided the visual of the "nether regions". Lately I have abandoned that rule and for good reason. It is my opinion that the female body is the most beautiful and incredible thing ever created. I dont see any shame in it and I believe in smashing down the old stereotypes that sex and sexuality is a dirty thing. I have been researching alot on what it is that defines the border between porn and art and I think it is about time that we ladies reclaimed our naughty bits from the dirtbags and the pornogrpahers who have taken sole, visual possession of them. I believe that nudity, full female nudity can be portrayed with elegance and artistry. I also believe that sexuality can be portrayed with absolute and utmost dignity and elegance. I realize that many people think that photos and visuals depicting things such as masturbation and penetration are considered pornogrpahic but I believe that this is simply because it is only the pornogrpahers who are depiciting it. I think we as artists and models shoud reclaim this aspect of our reality and give it a new and more elegant spin. I find it disgusting that some unknown dirtbags own the "right" to control how and what I portray simply through their existence. I am an adult, I am sexually active and these are things that are part of my day to day reality. Why is it that some pornographer gets the sole right to portray them? Why is it that if I created such images an entire segment of the population would instantly brand me a "porn" chick?

I full understand that the idea of porn is that it is a visual representation of something meant to create a sexual reaction. My thoughts on that are that this type of ideology marginalizes and objectifies women. What is we females actually feel like creating an art work that depictsa our own sexual gratification and some guy's arrousal is just the unintended byproduct? Honestly the idea here is that I and MANY models and artists are creating art that represents something for US and if it happens to turn someone on well then so be it. People, me included get turned on when a pretty girl walks down the street in a flimsy dress but does that mean it is porn? Is she doing it to turn people on? Or is she doing it simply for HERSELF and her own gratification? As a girl who regularly wears flimsy dresses( when the weather cooperates) I will say that I personally DO IT FOR MYSELF and actually am quite happy when I manage to avoid tacky types of attention.

So the new idea for art in 2013 is to explore new and limitless aspects of art ( You will only see that which is within DA rules) and doing what I can to take back my sexuality and my freedom to portray it back from the dirtbags and the scumbags who have for decades made it into something filthy and lowbrow. This will be a year of exploration and boundary smashing for me. Hope you hold on for the ride. Advice and opinions are GREATLY appreciated.

Much Love

XOXOXOXOXOXO :kiss:

Paragraph 1 -- goody!

Paragraph 2 -- Thanks!

Paragraph 3 -- Again, goody!

Context -- I once wrote a paper attempting to "prove" that all beauty could be derived from female nudity. I used many examples from cave paintings to Ruben to the Vatican art collection to Playboy. Got called a perv for my efforts.

It depresses me that nudity and sex are R and X and gross violence and blood only gets PG.

Folks such as yourself are helping to make our world right side up again.

Edith Piaf? Hazelnut? They're ok, but for some reason they stick in my sinuses long after they're over, so I don't do them very much.

Please have much fun and satisfaction in your endeavors. Don't let the a-holes distract you from your purpose. We appreciate it very much, even if we don't say it enough!

The social "restriction" on certain parts of the human anatomy has allways both intregued me and anoyed me... I have never "got" why if you show an erection or inner labia it is instantly considered porn.. I have seen some AMAZINGLY erotic, beautifully shot images, of these beautiful body parts that are nothing more than pure art... Do they titalate? perhaps... maybe even arouse... does that make them any less artistic???

I look forward to seeing the work you produce this next year... I hope it may challenge what I previously though of as art...

I am not a huge fan of the penis in art simply because the moment you open the flood gates of erection on to the art world they will spring up left and right like grass on a spring field. Of course there are wonderful depictions of nude make anatomy and I even had a few faves buried in the favorites. Some are downright delicious but it does need to be ARTISTIC and the same goes equally for the female genitals.

I have been producing alot of art all along that was always a bit nire risque, some of it has showed up here lately and some of it would be deemed illegal by DA. I am of course trying to do my best to blur that line and to create erotica that is powerful, elegant and intense. I do wish we had less restriction but I also understand why we have what we have.

Tasteful nudity is tasty ;-) Having any "nether region" piercings placed or planned?

Your lovely, tasteful and thoroughly artistic nudity is light years from porn. I wouldn't even think of your work in the same context. There is so much more to your lovely photos than merely prurient innuendo.

Thank You so much for such a stellar and loving review of my work. I honestly believe that the time has come that we females need to reclaim ownership of our sexuality in the visual and all artistic mediums. We should be free to express ourselves and what we wish to show and portray in absolute freedom and free of controversy :heart:

Darling, I love your work (and you) so much that I sometimes feel I must "rein in" my enthusiasm so that I don't embarrass you. I was very lucky to have a short relationship when I was nineteen with an incredible woman who taught me to be myself sexually and not to concern myself with the opinion of others. I think of her quite often when you speak of a woman's sexual freedom. I couldn't agree with you more. All my love and sweet kisses...

lol... you adopted my idea... i've been putting an idea for a new book together called "the fine line... art, erotic, pornography" and i've been having a hell of a time defining it... i truly believe 98% of my work is art that shows women in a positive light, but i'm often labeled an erotic photographer and some more closed minds label it as porn... i'm glad to see you are exploring the line yourself...

i enjoy your images, keep up the good work...
